I am in the middle of trying to "update my look", which means starting to dress like a professional. Unfortunately, this is much harder than it looks, and so I ended up with something my 16 y/o cousin would wear.
The pockets are set into the seam, and are my favorite part. I am working on enlarging my sewing "toolkit" (meaning abilities), and these pockets were a nice addition. I ended up riping every seam out at least once to finish, but it was worth it.
as a finial touch I was thinking: reverse applique. however, i think i will save that for another garment, as this one is busy enough.
